Indiana announced on Friday that freshman center Jeremiah April will transfer from the program. The school announced April’s departure in an official release.

“Jeremiah informed us earlier of his desire to seek a different situation for himself,” Indiana head coach Tom Crean said in the release. “He would like an increased role and we are not able to ensure him this would happen. Our hope is that he will reach his potential wherever he chooses to go.”

The 6-foot-11 April committed to Indiana last spring after attending Westwind Prep Academy in Arizona. He only appeared in four games during the 2014-15 season and played 17 total minutes, scoring six points and grabbing five rebounds.

“I want to thank Coach Crean and his staff for the opportunity and support and for helping me improve my game,” April said in the release. “My goal is to go somewhere I can have a bigger role. I’ll miss my teammates. They are a great group of guys. ”

The loss of April shouldn’t be too big for Indiana, as he was seen as a reach to begin with.
